Review- Ocean Potion Sport Xtreme Sunblock Lotion SPF 50

Designed for the sport enthusiast's active lifestyle. SPORT POTION SPF-50 bonds to your skin on contact, absorbs quickly and replenishes the skin with Vitamins A, C, & E. This unique formula is very water resistant, oil free, paba free, dry, non-greasy and fragrance free. - $8.99; 8 Fl. Oz.

I’m not a sports enthusiast by any stretch of the imagination; I walk nearly everywhere I go and use the stairs—that’s enough for me. And now that the cool temps of autumn have arrived here, I’m covered. This means my ability to test this product as very water and sweat resistant is limited to either wearing it in the shower (not likely, as I take baths) or working up a sweat (also not likely, unless I engage in an energetic “romp”—hmmm . . .well, if it’s in the interest of “science” and blogging . . .). However, I’m using it as a body lotion. Based on this, I can tell you I like that it does moisturize the skin even though it’s oil-free (great for not messing up good fabrics), does give my skin a smoother look and feel, and it is fragrance-free but not totally scent-free . . . and the scent, though slightly summertime, is pleasant. If you want to wear something scented over it, it won’t interfere. I never thought to use a sunblock as a moisturizer before, but that’s usually because of that at-the-pool scent they generally have. I feel and smell as though I used talcum powder, without the mess or sneezing.
